I have a card that uses the orinoco-pci driver and I specify the key
with a line like this:

wireless_key1 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

: I think the only important difference is the omission of a separator
in the key leaving just the 26 characters of the key.

Normally I only see keys listed with out a separator or with a ':'
character between each hex digit which would make it.

wireless-key xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
